Meet the team

Meet the staff

We are a very small team here at HospiceCare, supported by volunteers and keep costs to a minimum, but still need to generate over £525,000 this year to provide our existing services.

Lady Joicey

We are so terribly lucky to have HospiceCare in our area – the only palliative care charity in North Northumberland and one which provides free 24-hour care and support, not just to patients but also to their families.

I am delighted to become Patron of HospiceCare North Northumberland and feel that I am joining a special team of special people doing an exceptional job.

This year, and every year, in order to carry on our work, we need to raise over £500,000. We can apply for a small level of support from the NHS every year but it is not guaranteed. The rest comes through fundraising and donations. We are an independent charity, not supported by Macmillan, Marie Curie or other National charities.

HospiceCare has seen 100% increase in referrals in the last 12 months. The majority of these are for care and support in the home. Continued fundraising is crucial so that we can maintain our level of support.

I very much hope to be able to help HospiceCare continue its good work. It can and will be done, but we all need to help!

"I feel a fulfilment in being allowed to take care of people at the most personal time of their lives. It is the most rewarding job, with the emphasis on the patients, not the disease. With Hospice at Home individuality is honoured and helping patients achieve their wishes is foremost."
